But They Said…

Standard

If you don’t know what you’re avoiding, then how do you know you’re avoiding it?

GMO’S

Vibrations…Seriously, dude?

Maybe the question should be, “how was it modified”? and not just ‘angry mob’ the whole idea. Let’s go to Bill Nye for some help.

I’ll bet that this doesn’t look like the type of banana you are used to eating, and for good reason. Banana seeds are naturally inedible, and the flesh of the fruit is fairly hard. Around 8,000 years ago, humans began domesticating bananas. After generations of artificial selection, the banana’s flesh became softer and sweeter. The bananas available at your grocery store have been designed to be seedless for added convenience, though it does leave the plant unable to reproduce in the wild.


This banana has been modified to fit your needs


I’m sure our need to have our food visually pleasing doesn’t help either.

I’m all for labels. We should be able to make the decision on if we want to eat something or not. They also enable us as consumers to support the way we want things to be done. All I’m asking is that you do your own research and do what’s right for you.
